The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) revealed on Tuesday that no fewer than 65,000 Nigerian pilgrims are in Saudi Arabia for the 2019 Hajj.

An official of the commission, Aliyu Tanko, disclosed to journalists in Makkah that adequate arrangements have been made by NAHCON to ease the difficulties in performing the Hajj, which begins on Saturday.

He said all Nigerian pilgrims have arrived the Holy land and were engaged in preliminary activities preparatory to the conduct of the proper Hajj.

He also lauded the excellent arrangements made by the Saudi Arabian authorities to avoid congestion and commotion on Arafat day and during the stoning of the devil in Muna.
The commission official also revealed that the Saudi Arabian authorities have dedicated a road solely for Nigerian pilgrims during the stoning of the devil.

“We are highly pleased with this arrangement, this singular honor explains the cordial relationship and friendship existing between Nigeria and Saudi Arabia government.
“NAHCON has provided enough and fully air conditioned vehicles that will be shuttling with the pilgrims during the movement of the pilgrims to the designated worship places.

“The commission has also engaged the services of competent and well experienced individuals to serve as guide to avoid cases of missing pilgrims, while we have also made arrangements for tracking devices to monitor the movement of our pilgrims,” he said.

Mr Tanko commended the excellent conduct of Nigerian pilgrims in the Holy land, as not a single case of breach of Law has been reported to the commission, but also alerted the pilgrims of dangers the harsh weather could have on their health if they get too exposed.

The News Agency of Nigeria also reported that NAHCON has deployed atleast 350 medical personnel to Saudi Arabia to cater for the medical needs of Nigerian pilgrims.
